Hi all, is anyone using this service for your I Phone? I have Verizon

at the moment, as does my wife. It looks to be cheaper. How does it work with iPhone? I have the iPhone  SE, and the ad says I can get the iPhone 20 for free. Any comments? Jim

List Rules

When:
12/01/2021
12:00am to 1:00am
(UTC-05:00) America/New York

View Event

Description:
The following is the current version of the JFW Mailing List policies. These are sent out monthly, and also available from:

http://groups.io/g/jfw/wiki/List-Policies 

 

**List Policies**

1: Keep it clean. We're a family list, and there are people here who probably don't want to hear everything *exactly* that's running through your head. If you wouldn't see it on TV, it doesn't belong in a post to the list. If you're not sure, email the administration before you post it to the list. Otherwise, you stand to see your posts moderated.

2: Stay on topic. We're a JFW-oriented list. That said, anything related to JFW, its functionality with programs etc is acceptable. If it doesn't have to do with JFW, it doesn't belong on the list. This includes, but isn't limited to, talk of other screen readers such as Window Eyes.

3: Listen to, and respect, the wishes of the admins/moderators. If you're asked by an admin or moderator to drop a subject, or take something to private emails (in the instance of two people carrying on a thread list-wide), please do so. If the subject is changed on a thread by an admin or moderator, it will be explained why in the email sent out with it. Please don't continue replying to the old subject.

4: Don't ask over the list for a position on the list administration. If you'd like to help out, it's of course welcome, but address the request to do so to the admin team, otherwise it'll be ignored. Requests are always welcome, whether help is being looked for or not. When help is needed, a post will be made to the list. The requests already received will be kept in mind.

5: Keep flaming to a minimum. This is not limited to flaming of each other, but goes beyond that, to flaming of products, opinions, ideas, suggestions, etc. Constructive criticism never hurts. Flame wars, especially public ones, both drive people from this list and are unwelcome here. either take the problem to private emails, or report the problem to list administration.

6. Respect the opinions and views of others. This is *very* important in any environment, most especially an online environment where the only gage one has on a person is what that person puts to writing. If you come off as hostile in your posting, whether you intended to or not, people will take it as such. Online, "face value" means just that. People make mistakes, people don't always have access to the same information you do. For that matter, people don't always have the same experience you do. If you know how someone can solve their problem, great. Suggest it to them and/or the list. Do *not* proceed to tell someone, on or off list, that they have no business posting. Repeat offenders of this particular rule will be banned for a week to 30 days, depending on the severity. Serious problems will be banned permanently.

As always, if there are problems or questions with regards these policies, don't hesitate to send them off-list to jfw+owner@groups.io

James,
List Admin

The problem is that the play button is inside the video and you need

john clayton
 

Hi,
 The best and the easiest way to do what you are after is to burn the playlist to a disk through itunes itself, and the others should be able to play the disk without issue anywhere at all.
When Itunes burns the .m4p's to the disk it loses the drm and is playable where ever you are able to play disks normally.
none of the other methods/ convertors as suggested in this thread are likely to work, accept for playing the audio and having it recorded through whatever recording software, but if your machine has a dvd/cd drive burning is the easiest quickest way to do what you are after, imo.
hth,

Hello Everyone,

I just wanted to report on the question I posted about converting mp4 iTunes files to mp3.

First, to save time, I used Amazon and purchased the 4-5 I needed the song were already in Mp3. It cost me about $20-30.

Second, my friend gave me a site that claims to offer free conversion of MP4 to MP3, but with a 1G limit.

https://www.freeconvert.com/mp4-to-mp3

I will try it out when I have more time probably after the holidays.

Thanks,

Jeff

I think that you can rename the .m4b to .m4a in file manager.

I believe it can be done, but apple’s not gonna make it easy for you to convert the files to an open/accessible format like mp3. Those files are suppsoed to be protected. I’ve seen a couple of pages that show you ways to do this but they all involve some ridiculous steps that seem excessive/time-consuming/overly complicated.

What I would do is either: simplyb urn an udio cd, if you can, or, maybe, play the songs througha nd use a programme to capture the output. Ou could do this with most any digital audio editor. You might lose some quality when converting to mp3, but should be fairly reasonable so long as you use a high bitrate like 320.
